I received this Fasco pin nailer quickly (2 days) and it was well packaged. I have used a Grex P650 pin nailer and this one matched the quality and performance plus it adds the ability to shoot slight headed pins just like the Cadex.

I used this nailer right out of the box to install 200 linear feet of red oak shoe molding and not one jam - fasteners went in perfectly with just the right amount of depth. No wood filler was needed! I used the 1-1/2" Grex pins for this project.

Word on the street is that it is made in the same factory as both Grex and Cadex nailers. Amazon was 30% less than these other nailers. I compared parts diagrams from all three manufacturers and 99% of parts looked identical.

In addition, I called Fasco directly for questions and there responses and customer service were terrific. They are a well known Italian company that specializes in fastening tools and equipment for manufacturers and professionals.

High quality for much lower price! If you look at the parts breakdown charts on other 23g pinners (Grex P650L 23-Gauge 2-Inch Headless Pinner with Lock-Out and Cadex CPB23.50 23 Gauge Headless Pinner and 23 Gauge Brad Nailer, 1/2-Inch to 2-Inch) and the parts breakdown on this pinner it looks almost identical. I've read on at least one reputable merchant's site that this pinner is made in the same factory that makes the significantly more expensive Grex and Cadex pinners. Admittedly I haven't laid hands on those tools, but while some of the surface finish on the body of the Fasco F23C is not super clean the working parts have excellent fit and finish. I just started using it and so far I'm very impressed and inclined to believe the claims.

Pins AND brads. If you check the manufacturer's website and read the spec sheet on this pinner it mentions specs for slight head brads.

So, this tool fires up to 2" pins, has dry fire lock out, dry fire over-ride (so you can fire the remaining six pins if you want to), auto fastener length adjustment--like the high-end Grex and Cadex tools--AND the ability to fire slight head brads unlike the Grex. However it lacks the built in air blower of the Cadex. In other words, you get all the features of the Grex and then some, and only one less feature than the Cadex, at approximately 1/3 less cost. This pinner/bradder is a no-brainer.

I have a Grex P650L, and it's a very nice pinner. It doesn't shoot slight head pins though. I got the Fasco because of the slight head feature. It's nearly identical to the Grex. Both are high quality, and perform well. Most of the parts appear to be interchangeable.

Slight head helps a lot with softer woods and composites. Slight head let me do a bunch of cedar assembly. Headless pins were a bother to work with. Grex says they avoided slight head because of higher jamming rates, and bigger holes. The holes, yes. Still tiny though. Jamming, no. The Fasco hardly every jams or has any sort of problem.

Considering the rather large price difference, the Fasco is an easy choice to make. Fasco is a good value, and a great tool.

(I wrote a review of the Grex as well-a little more info if you want to seek it out)

This tool is the Italian version of both the Grex and the Max (Japan). Most notable is all 3 guns in general appearance, are the same gun. A similarity beyond coincidence.
I later found the exploded view and parts lists from Fasco and Grex and they are in fact, the same gun. The Fasco also has the lockout feature that is identical to the Grex 650L.)
The only differences are the color and price. At Amazon, at the time of my purchase the Grex was $329. vs $175 for the Fasco. That is 48%! There was nothing to think about here.

The Fasco, in all pin sizes, works flawlessly. And a note to others who may not make their living with these tools. The guys with the experience get to know which pin goes with
what material and that is what it is all about. And there is a big difference between old and new work. Wood hardens with age (petrified wood is now stone). I remember trying to
pull 16D spikes only half nailed into roof rafters of a 100 year old home and it was hard with a 24" bar. Much older homes and different wood will require a different fastener.

I use this pinner in my Cabinet Shop for Small mouldings. It is great for that purpose. Very Small hole is not invisible as almost all of the Pinner Manufacturers want you to believe that it is invisible by description. The narrow tip of this tool makes it easy to shoot the pins into the darker grains of stained wood which is harder to see, but I fill them anyway as customers can be very picky about almost anything. For painted cabinets, the holes must be filled or you will get a small but visible hole. Paint WILL NOT fill the hole. Also, I ALWAYS use a small amount of glue as the moulding tends to get loose especially in damp areas such as a bathroom. Also, shoe mouldings will come loose as homes tend to swell and shrink as the seasons change. So use a small amount of glue or try the 23ga slight headed brads which might give a lttle better hold, but may also pull away.Now for the bad news. All tools wear. If you use these on hardwoods such as oak, over time the driver tip will become worn and begin to misfire. Mine will leave the pins sticking out, which then must be set leaving a larger hole. It is hard to find parts for the Fasco. I fould one company online that sells the Driver assembly, but are asking way to much. I wrote the Fasco America website over a week ago about finding parts and have received no reply from them. Hence their customer service is non-existant. I will never again but from this company since they will not answer a simple question. I will buy from someone who can at least sell me the parts to fix the tool when it get worn. Think about it, you may save some money in the beginning, but in the end you may have a useless tool that you cannot repair or costs too much for the parts because online sites do not sell them.
